This lesson introduces algebra to give learners a basic understanding of the topic by solving simple equations and forming their own algebraic expressions.and collecting 'like terms'. Pictures are used to help learners grasp the idea of algebra and a printable card activity can also be made from one of the power point slides. This lesson is designed to be interactive, with questions/ answers included. This also reduces the need for printing. Although originally designed for GCSE, this resource will prove useful in any math lesson. Learning aims are also included so students can measure their level of understanding and success in class. A lesson I have enjoyed teaching myself!
